The next few days will see intense speculation about how this will affect Trump personally. But it’s important because the world can now see that Mueller has sharp teeth. But to get to Trump, surely Mueller must go after Trump’s family?

Special Counsel Mueller Focuses On Trump’s Son – Buzz Feed News

Controversial Buzzfeed News  currently has the hottest Trump news story on Twitter, claiming that Special Counsel Mueller is focusing on Trump’s son.

It argues that prosecutors investigating possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign are bearing down on the president’s son, attempting to figure out his intent when he attended a meeting in which he was promised dirt on Hillary Clinton as part of Russia’s support for Trump’s campaign. It suggests that the question of intent could be crucial in determining if Donald Trump Jr. violated the law.

Although the article is full of speculation and assumptions –  very light on evidence – it brings the pressure back on the Trump family.

But with increased pressure on the Trump family, perhaps we’ll see Steve Bannon try to strengthen his influence and offer Trump a winning formula once again?

Thoughts?

Footnote:

Bannon has since been fired from his role at the White House and has announced that he’s returning to Breibart News. I sense that Bannon is still important to Trump if Trump wants to retain the support of those who voted for him
